Flash 55-Rats

Flash Fiction 55
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55. Here is today's:

The poor postal worker found vermin among the packages on the large porcelain basin where the packages were sorted.

That was early Tuesday morning.
The exterminator came on Thursday
but there wasn't an animal to be found.
They were very confused until they remembered the old saying that

rats will always leave a shipping sink.

Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the thirty seventh chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood.

The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Looking around and seeing nobody Sir Laughsalot said:
" Robert I need a favor"
The big dragon responded:
" Well I owe you one"
"You do indeed,. I need an already dead dragon".
"You want me to get you an already dead dragon?"
" I'll wait three hills over, North".
"Okay!" and the big dragon flew off.

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

I am so far behind on your 55's that I have NO idea why Sir Laughsalot would need an already dead dragon... but I hope Bob gets it for him! (who ever heard of a dragon named ROBERT???)
